Our Little Secret was a page-turner and a brilliant read. I seriously never got bored reading it. The chapters are short and conclude in such an enticing manner that I could have read the entire book in one sitting if I’d had the time.
It begins in a police interrogation room with a Detective Novak questioning his detainee, Angela Petitjean (pronounced Peti-SHON), about the disappearance of a woman named Saskia. Angela informs the detective that she doesn’t have any information regarding Saskia’s whereabouts, but proceeds to tell him all about HP, who appears to have been her childhood best friend and soul mate. Through Angela’s account of her relationship with HP, we learn about her formative years; including her life at home with her parents, her time away at a prestigious University, and how things start to spiral downward in her life, which is when Saskia’s identity is revealed. All of these revelations take place in that interrogation room. I kept wondering if Angela was a reliable narrator. Was I justified in taking pity on her? Who was being deceitful? Who betrayed whom? These were some of the questions I kept asking myself as I read Our Little Secret.
Since I don’t want to give anything away accidentally, let’s just say this is psychological suspense at its finest; thrilling and well-written with characters that kept me questioning my opinions of them.
The ending had me like…
Very highly recommended.
